Correspondence from Benjamin Silliman to John Torrey, dated 1819-1848, primarily discussing issues related to the production of Silliman's American Journal of Science and Arts.

He makes frequent references people not readily identified, such as "Dr. Me.," "Mr. Camman and his ores" (possibly Albert Cammann), "Mr. Barnes" (possibly D.H. Barnes), "Dr. Smith," "Mr. Bowen," "Lane" (possibly Ephraim Lane), "Dr. Johnson," "Mr. Wyatt," and "Dr. McMurtine."
